So, bit of a long story tonight, but it has a happy ending! My family and I went up to a flea market today,and I found a bit of pokemon stuff. I found old strategy books for R/B/Y, and G/S ($4 total! :D ), and I gave a home to a bootie skiddo figure... I collect the goat line, and he was so darned homely... he was 50 cents, so the herd gained a homely pair of hooves as well ^^'
Then there's the real get.
He was grey, smoke stained, and splattered with green and blue crayon wax. He had a rip along half of one foot, and the toe string on that foot was missing as well.
He's a Berkshire Fashions mewtwo plush keychain. I bought him out of pity, for a quarter from the booth with the pokemon guides. I didn't know if he was even fixable. I took him home, and quite a bit of Goof Off later, the wax is off, but the blue wax stained one ear a bit, and his neck and tail have the tiniest green hue in small areas. I began scrubbing his fur out with a toothbrush and soapy water, and saw his legs turn brown. Soaked him fully for a moment, and when I squeezed him out, the water was pure brown XP
So after soaking, squeezing, rinsing, and repeating 4-6 times, he's a light purple again! :D
He may be a bit stained, and he may have a stitched up foot, and a resewn toe on one foot,and his eyes may be permanently stained, but he's mine now, and he's got a good home :)
Moral of the story, if you see a plushie in need, try and show some love, okay? :)
Goodnight everyone :)
From me, and Berk :3
